I don't think I've seen this posted here already, so:

Actually, the guy was probably such an obvious choice it's a wonder they even bothered taking applications. (He gets the David Gans vote of approval, too.)
Some of you might have read him before; his All Graceful Instruments anthology is a bit over-academic, but the essays he did in the first Taping Compendium on the early Acid Tests and the Dead's '66 sessions were excellent.

What was the remark Bob Weir made about whoever gets that job? Something to the effect of "don't lick the envelopes!" Best wishes to Nicholas Merriwether..

How about an epic video biography about the band? Something along the lines of "The Beatles Anthology" or the one about Dylan called "No Direction Home" that were released over the past few years?

This is an excellent choice I love Merriweather --saw 2nd night in '84, both nights in '85, and the JGB shows in 89 :)

I don't doubt his qualifications, but what's up with this?

"I can narrow down the moment I saw my first Dead show to a four- to five-month period, when I was college somewhere in the fall of 1985."

How many of you cannot say when your first Dead show was?

That is a bit odd...I would reckon every here has posted about it more than once...But, for this job, not sure we need an "insider", or a fanatic (most of us)...still, odd.

Most of you know I am a biologist, and I will never forget the time, date, place, I met my "hero" in biology, out in the field no less, and I even strangely/appropiately/absurdly, used the line "Doctor Livingston (insert real name here) I presume?" (at least all the students with him laughed, as did he--we had corresponded since I was a kid, and this was in late HS).

I can't, I can narrow it down a little further than Nicholas M. but I don't have the history most of you have.
